a moment and say a prayer of thanks for the environment we live in. for all of us who touch bay area real estate, it's really incredible how quickly things have changed. if you go back two, two and a half years and think about what the environment was in the middle of 2010, we were in a terrible environment. values were down significantly. we couldn't lease space it save ourselves and we felt it would be a long, long slug to come out of the hole we were in. here we are, barely two years later, in one of the strongest office markets in the country. the growth for is overwhelming a shrinking of real estate needs and we're not seeing that kind of growth in new york or washington. it's very select markets that we're seeing the kind of growth that you are seeing in san francisco. so we all should be grateful that we work in this very unique and interesting environment. i am also grateful to jerry and rob speyer for driving this company that can take on and capitalize projects. there are few companies able to do this. i feel very lucky to be part of such a strong and wonderful team and to work
about making urban environments vital. given the present political move, people are open to new ideas. that is true across the country. our burners are being asked to come into centers of various cities for aetna. -- right now. whehowever, as soon as things gt better, they are escorted out. but we might begin to break that cycle. it is just wonderful to walk out on the street and see the world walking by. >> are you giving the twitter deal? >> yes, we are. we just founded a new nonprofit. black rock arts foundation, which is dedicated to spreading interactive, a collaborative art throughout the world. now we have founded but we call the burning and project. -- what we call the burning man project. it eventually leads to the event itself. this is a wonderful opportunity. the thing about burning man, when you look at the variety of people that go there, when you look at this environment, where all the normal boundaries are down in every department of human knowledge and endeavor. if you ask what possible application that we have created that may be useful loud in the desert, -- what wou
this opportunity to kind of examine what is going on in our real estate environment, and in particular, to thank the san francisco business times for putting on this event. and i think for most of us in this room, we rely very heavily on the san francisco business times to keep track of what is going on in san francisco, and the greater bay area, in the real estate world. and it is the best source of that information for all of us. mary asked me if i would make a few observations about the general state of the real estate economy here in san francisco and as i do that, i always have to think about what to say that mary hasn't already said about it. and if you look at the real estate economy generally in our nation, and the fact that it is still soft. that we still need more jobs. that there is a recovery, but it's a slow recovery. you can't do that without thinking gee, will i sound like a politician for one or the other major political parties? and so i will steer clear of that and focus instead on san francisco and maybe we're living in a bubble, but it's a pretty wonderful bubble to be living
let people loose in an environment -- people will always give to a greater gift. it is just a principle. if a group get together to give a gift to an entire city, it is easy to find people who will give to that. and the consequence is, you can learn a lot. talk about a networking opportunity. but nobody ever went there to network. they went out there to give their energy, imagination, their heart to something. >> there is that collaboration, the cross-disciplinary thing that happens out there, but i also feel like there is a bit of a sense of competition. people are trying to outdo each other, try to outdo each other trt impressive thing. >> that is human nature. i read a few years ago somebody complaining, i remember the good old days. you could put up a pink flamingo in front of your tent and it was cool. now with all of these big projects, i feel few tile -- futile. well, they learned the wrong lesson. the interesting thing is, people say that they are connected, but in an environment like that, it is easy to get connected. it is easy to get help. unless you insist on bei
thinking about emotional, financial, social, spiritual, environment, occupational and zerintellectual. because the eight dimensional model of wellness. this is how we conceptualize wellness. care about as a bonus because people are physically sick and many are dying before the general population. we care about intellectual honest because we need help the minds and how the bodies and the knowledge to reclaim and manage or light and recovery. weaker but social wellness because the conditions about social isolation, leading people further from their healthy recovery. we care about spiritual oneness because the disease, all of these diseases robs us of our sense of spiritual connectedness. return about mental and emotional rawness because people need clear, live at mines, in order to live a productive lives and pursue recovery. recurve and marijuana's because it is impossible for people to feel better or well in places -- we care about occupational wellness because we need jobs to fill our days, to give it time and -- we need stable incomes and savings in order to live comfortably and rid
and more exposures to the environment as hair dyes get into the waterway and food even if we don't get our hair dyed. our skin should be lighter and darkers, smoother, lips plumper, these companies have so much power over our minds, public space and sense of self as they continue to expose us to chemicals even though safer alternatives are available. we have the power. we have the power to decide which products we put on our body and which companies we support with our money. that is actually a real power that can feel very very good when you start to take advantage of it. ahrolt a lot of this information is scary and real. i tell people, i do get to the good news around chapter 10. there is a lot of good news to share. i have heard so many amazing stories along the way. 30 cities in 13 states. 3,000 people come out to these talks. there is just an amazing energy. and so many just wonderful store reus about people engaging in this work, people who have been to skin deep and start their own company or change their major. people making radical decisions about their own personal life styles.
a our regulatory environment under control but they are not duplicative. those are the things we need to get america moving again. that is what romney talks about. when sigh him do that, i feel pretty good about because i think he is on the right path. you may not hear it through the mega phone of national media and he should do it more. >> paul: i paid attention to your race in 2010. you ran against a candidate ted strickland very much like the president is, tried to associate with you wall street and big banks. you beat him. how can mitt romney beat a campaign like that in ohio? >> he's got to be here paul. he was in high hometown not long ago. he had an overflow crowd that was amazing. i've been around a lot of national campaigns. when you are out with him. you see the enthusiasm. look the most important thing for candidate running for president is to get people to understand that he understands their problems or she understands their problems and knows how to fix them. jim roads the fourth term governor of ohio, all that matters in ohio is the size of this wallet. sf it's getting
environment for compromise. so, things have always work themselves through and i think they will now but that fiscal cliff thing is looming as a real problem and it doesn't have to be because the basic guts of it are good and i think having, relying on the central bank to shoulder all the burden of charging the economy and abandoning the fiscal side because of the difficulty in the political process you know is unfair and gives us a skewed and unfair view of the rio i think in a lot of ways courage. whether it works or not is still open to debate and people are certainly exercising their power to grant it fully but if you are -- if only one side of the car is driving you will go in circles. >> we just had simpson-bowles and two years too late with a couple trillion dollars extra debt on top. >> sometimes the policy needs that time to sort out. the fact that it's an efficient in the long term, the efficiencies we take in order to get people to throw in, the long-term is what makes the system stable. so i'm not worried that we will get it and let me say on the more optimistic side peop
in an environment, at least i was fortunate enough where we believed that it is perfectible. in a, it's very -- i think pretty much it's a acceptable or maybe somewhat today to be so critical or almost invariably critical as a country and pointing out what's wrong. there are obviously things around. there are obviously things wrong i grew up in georgia. that was pointed out, but there was always this underlying belief that we were entitled to be a full participant in we the people. that's the way we grow. it was the way the nuns would explain it to us. we were entitled to be full participants. it was never any doubt that we were inherently equal. it said so in the declaration of independence. of course there were times that i to became quite cynical. the remarks and deciding the not so pleasant remarks in reciting the pledge of allegiance or say things that i think would -- whether or not cell phones. people couldn't youtube you and it's around forever. i was just of said. i grew up in an environment with people around me who believed that this country could be better. the framework for it was th
to be in some cases, that's not going to be -- it's, you know, it's not a good environment for compromise. you know, things have always worked themselves through, and i think they will now, but that fiscal cliff, things, it's looming as a real problem, and it doesn't -- it doesn't have to be because the basic, you know, the basic guts of it are good, and i think having, you know, relying on the central bank to shoulder all the burden of charging the economy and abandoning the fiscal side to it because of the difficulty in the political process is, you know, it's unfair. gives us a skewed and an unfair view of the real -- the real, i think, you know, in a lot of ways courage, whether it works or not, that's open to people to debate it, but people exercising powers granted fully, but, you know, if you're only working, only one side of the car is driving, it's going in circles. >> we get sevenson-bams, just two years two -- simpson-bowles, but two years too late? >> the fact that it's inefficient in the long term -- the efficiencies we take in order to get people to throw in, in the long term wor
must come down as well, because it's unfair to our children. the american people want this environment protected. they know that these toxic waste dumps should have been cleaned up a long time ago, and they know that people's lives and health are being risked, because we've had an administration that has been totally insensitive to the law and the demand for the protection of the environment. the american people want their children educated. they want to get our edge back in science, and they want a policy headed by the president that helps close this gap that's widening between the united states and europe and japan. the american people want to keep opening doors. they want those civil rights laws enforced. they want the equal rights amendment ratified. they want equal pay for comparable effort for women. and they want it because they've understood from the beginning that when we open doors, we're all stronger, just as we were at the olympics. i think as you make the case, the american people will increasingly come to our cause. itmr. mondale, isn't possible that the american people h
in on january 1. >> tom: meantime, the environment out there, we sought latest g.d.p. revision yesterday, a slower economy faster than expected. corporate earnings also slowing down. that's happening regardless of what's going on in the political environment. >> it certainly is. earlier this summer, what was really driving stock prices, in my person was two words-- anticipated stimulus. notice, it's removal of uncertainty, and so i think the real question is will we be seeing a trough in corporate earnings in the third quarter, a trough in u.s. g.d.p., in this or the fourth quarter of the year? or might we be seeing troughing a little bit later on for other international g.d.p.s. in general, i think a lot of people are anticipating that maybe the worst will soon be behind us, especially because of all this liquidity that's been pumped into the system over the past several months. >> tom: you've crunched numbers and brought some sectors to watch for next three months, including the technology area here with xlk, being the e.t.f. for the technology sector. has had a nice rally over the las
a learning environment and giving up on them and bringing that down to 4% is really huge and i attribute that to board leadership and restorative practices, leadership at the school sites and to principals and claudia anderson and her team. finally on the test score what is is really clear to me is the achievement gap just persists so in our district the average in english is about 61% of proficient or above which is okay. that's two out of three kids that are proficient or above but we have some groups performing at 85% and some at 35% and one in three proficient or above is just not acceptable. nobody can really say that proclaims success and only one in three this a sub group are proficient and above and math 68% and pretty good overall. we have some students performing at 89% and others at 40%, just two out of five. to close this gap with single dkg itd growth would take 20 years we don't have 20 years so what is really clear from the data is the investment in the superintendent zone, with the school improvement grant, the infusion of money is relating in double digit growth which
came to seven straight about 10 years ago. -- 7th street about 10 years ago. the environment is huge. it is stronger than willpower. surrounding yourself with artists, being in a culture where artists are driving, and where a huge amount of them is a healthy environment. >> you are making it safer. push, push. that is better. when i start thinking, i see it actually -- sometimes, i do not see it, but when i do, it is usually from the inside out. it is like watching something being spawned. you go in, and you begin to work, excavate, play with the dancers, and then things began to emerge. you may have a plan that this is what i want to create. here are the ideas i want to play with, but then, you go into the room, and there maybe some fertile ideas that are becoming manifest that are more interesting than the idea you had initially set out to plan. so there has to be this openness for spontaneity. also, a sense that regardless of the deadline, that you have tons of time so the you can keep your creativity alive and not cut it off and just go into old habits. it is a lot like listening
. >> as it is needed. you asked that question. i wanted to clarify. that's something i think was an ideal environment for these concepts. it is limited to that geographic area. and i believe firmly that it would be very successful because it would be done with a lot of thoughtful application of these concepts. it won't be with a sledge hammer. >> right. >> on the issue of congestion pricing, there is a larger policy. what i will tell you is this. the environment that we had when we did the mobility and pricing study was such that in addition to hitting a major recession, which is not a great time to be having a conversation about charging anybody more for anything -- >> right. >> we also i believe did not have the region prepared for this. and that is a situation that we often have. we in san francisco tend to lead the charge on ideas that then take some time to mature in the region. the region is also coming along. the region has already, since we did our study, implemented some form of pricing on the bay bridge, for example. where there is a larger charge. i think we are moving in that direction. t

to be at risk in that environment? is it too unstable of an environment for effective security exercise to continue? your thoughts on that. >> i appreciate that question. in 2001, i voted to authorize use of mill tear force in afghanistan. in the days and months following the nen attacks on the united states. it was a very clear and focused megs to go after those who planned and executed that attack. and i believe our brave men and women who went to afghanistan, very capably fulfilled that mission, frankly in fairly short order. i was in afghanistan in august of 2010, in kabul and at bagram air force base. i met with wisconsin soldiers and -- soldiers and folks in the military from the senior ranks to the tissue to those coming back from forward operating bases. you would be so proud of those men and women, but the mission today this nation building mission, is not the one that was authorized. it is now time for them to come home. >> governor thompson? >> my opponent just, i think, misstated. she said she voted for the sanctions against iran. she voted against the sanctions in 2006, 200
're so endangered, because the fewer the resources are -- and in a desert environment, where you don't have a lot of rain, you don't have a lot of animal life, you don't have a lot to choose from, they have to spread out and travel farther and have more space. the carrying capacity on land is less, so you have less animals on more space. and that's part of the problem. i mean, part of the problem is that we're invading, and we're moving into the desert, because we think it's a great place to retire and things like that, and we're pushing them out of that space, and they have less to choose from. jarod: now, the living desert zoo, they're extremely involved in protecting, and preserving, and educating about all desert life. why is the mexican wolf such a priority for breeding, especially among the zoos in the united states? liz: because there are so few of them, and we need a lot of help from facilities that exist in the environmental conditions that they belong in to help us out and help us breed, because there aren't very many of them left. jarod: right, because ultimately, i mean,

chair. representative john mika and the senate environment and the committee chair barbara boxer. michael was focused on delivery reforms and boxer, innovative financing and those are the key points that you will see in the bill itself. president obama signed it into law in july. and back in june, i don't think that anybody was expecting that we would actually see this bill come to fruition. but within a couple of weeks following the bill was on the president's desk for signature. the primary issue to point out with map 21, is that it is a two-year bill and it does not fundamentally change federal transportation policy. you can see from the picture on the slide in the corner, that it is illustrative of the politics of the bill. this is president obama at the signing of the bill and you see representatives of teachers

? >> not really. the nra is now under the umbrella of the environment ministry. this means politicians and bureaucrats will still have influence because they control the agency's budget. another issue is a composition of the nra's task. more than 80% of its employees come from previous regulatory bodies. to prevent conflictsf interest, the government says nra employees will be prohibited from moving or returning to the ministry of industry. the government unit that promoted nuclear energy, but critics are already finding loopholes in this. >> what challenges will the nra be facing over the coming months? >> there's a long list. without doubt, the most important and immediate challenge is redefining nuclear safety regulations. new standards will have to take into account the latest findings and technological advances to make sure nuclear plants can withstand natural disasters and major accidents. once the nra sets its standards, it will conduct a case-by-case review of all of japan's nuclear reactors to determine which can be brought back online. the nra plans to come up with new criter

[ laughter ] i feel very fortunate to work in this environment, to work for a great company and most importantly to get to work with all of you everyday. thank you very much. [ applause ] >> thank you, carl. now we're going to move from the talk about the tech explosion to one of our most significant economic generators, which is the hospitality industry and i think we're going to have some breaking news this morning, if i can call it that. and see some of the first visuals of the moscone center expansion. at least i think so. so we're so fortunate -- i'm not going to waste a lot of time on the introduction, but have i to say that joe, president and ceo of sf travel association, formerly san francisco convention bureau is one of the leaders of the city and has done so much for the industry and for sf travel. and he is going to tell you about the plans for the moscone center expansion. he has done so much and created the san francisco tourism improvement district in 2009 and that actually is helping fund this whole structure. so i'm just going to let j

before, and our goal is to keep a safe environment and to do what we have to do. as far as our officers, any location is certified by the state, and they are all insured. >> i have one question. i have no doubt this is going to be run as a great business. the guy upstairs is talking about ambiance around -- ambient sound going out onto the street. is the ceiling the floor of an apartment upstairs? >> it is not an apartment. it is a business. >> the house band will be what kind? >> approximately 8:00 in the evening. we do have a sound technician here. >> i am good with it. >> do you want to hear from him? >> we will have a public comment, and if you are finished we will hear from the police department. if they want to enter into this. >> good evening. as far as the gold dust, central station does not oppose the permit. they have a 47-year record of performing real well. i even spoke with officer torres, and he says we are really sorry to see them go, so i think it is a good fit. i have spoken with snake about the concerns i could come up with. -- with nick about the concerns i could come

be a terrific buy especially in an environment where the price of gold keeps going higher. what is this company? it's sandstorm gold symbol sand. speculative canadian mine financing business. think of sandstorm as being a financer for gold miners. we're in an environment where miners have a lot of trouble getting financing. lenders aren't lending them money. they need more capital. take advantage of this high gold price. that's where sandstorm comes in they will give a gold miner immediate money up front in exchange for the percentage of the future gold produced. in essence buying themselves a piece of the production stream. they also make a fixed ongoing payment for the gold they receive down the road. that payment is incredibly low, usually around $500 an ounce. gold is worth about $1700 an ounce. why don't you think of sandstorm being a smaller version of a stock that blew my mind when they came on the show, franklin nevada. that's another company that invests in gold royalty streams who's ceo opened my eyes to this whole concept. since then the stock has risen 13% in three weeks. franklin n
